Our gorgeous 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo has everything you will need for the perfect vacation. The beds are comfy with a king sized bed in the main bedroom and 2 single beds in the second bedroom. There is flexibility in the 2nd bedroom, the single beds can be made into a king sized bed or the helpful folks at the front desk are happy to provide a 3rd single bed to sleep 5 comfortably. There are lovely garden doors in both bedrooms opening onto the small patio at the back. These doors make the bedrooms so light and airy! The front patio is surrounded by lush greenery and has a table and chairs where you can sit and have coffee, cocktails or dine al fresco.
The kitchen is amazing with top of the line stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, an abundance of small appliances and all of the dishes, cutlery and serving pieces you will need (if you decide to cook). The luxurious bathrooms have vessel sinks, roomy showers, fluffy bath towels and have marble walls and floors, in fact, there are marble floors throughout. The condo is beautifully furnished with some really interesting pieces and there are flat screen TVs throughout.
You can make use of the DVD player, stereo or ipod dock in our fully air conditioned condo. You can take advantage of the amenities in the common areas of Porto Playa including the pools and jacuzzis, the various lounge chairs, outdoor sofa area and table and chairs scattered among the amazing palm trees and lush tropical foliage throughout the courtyard. The front office area is open 24 hours and there is round the clock security as well.
Our condo comes with a parking space in the underground garage. A great gym is on site and free for guests at Porto Playa and at our beach front sister property El Taj (there are four sister properties) you have full use of the most amazing beach club in Playa del Carmen. Try the delicious offerings at the beach club restaurant Indigo. Porto Playa is one block from the powdery white sand beach and warm, clear azure waters of the Caribbean Sea - closer than many "rooms" at the out of town all-inclusives. Water sports of every kind are available here so you can enjoy the beach one day or go snorkelling, parasailing, deep sea fishing the next.
One block in the other direction from the condo and you will find yourself on the famous 5th Avenue. It is renowned for its many trendy and not-so-trendy shops, wide variety of restaurants, bars, clubs and businesses. This 2 mile stretch of street (no vehicles allowed) is a great place for people watching. It is more comfortable to stroll along 5th Avenue in the evening when it is cooler and on Thursday evenings you will be treated to an outdoor display of art that begins around 12th or 14th Streets (calle). There is always something new to see and do on 5th Avenue. The location of our condo just could not be better!

We are a retired couple with children and grandchildren. Our kids and grandkids absolutely love it here, especially since we live in a northern area where winters are long and cold. We love to travel and have travelled throughout the world. We have also travelled widely in Mexico and have fallen in love with Playa del Carmen.
Location, location, location! It just couldn't be better. The closeness of the wonderful Caribbean waters and great shopping and restaurants is perfect. The ambience at this location is fabulous with none of the buildings in this area being taller than 4 stories. The people are so friendly and helpful we feel right at home - only at home with a much better climate! We are so happy that the beach is uncrowded and so close. We don't think there is a better condo in a better complex in a more beautiful location!
From the moment we set foot on this property we were impressed by the cleanliness, the upkeep and the tremendous attention to detail both within the condo unit itself and the complex in general. We couldn't help but be bowled over by the quality of the materials used, the thoughtful planning and the unparalleled beauty of the entire complex. The staff and management go above and beyond to meet your every request and they do so as soon as humanly possible, really! And they are so nice. We love the daily maid service and how comfortable and beautiful our condo is. The amenities that are available are almost too numerous to list. We especially like that we (and our guests) can borrow games, cards and beach toys. This is probably one of the most private condos in the complex especially with the second little patio at the back.
